Enjoyed the trails however a little disappointing that Minneapolis bike trails appear to be designed for recreation and not transport as they fail to connect with each other.

Miles and miles of paved bike trails in good condition that circle Minneapolis, wind around the lakes (Harriet, Calhoun, Isles, and part of Cedar), run alongside the Mississippi river, and hug Minnehaha Creek. Cool and shady on many parts of the ride. Fall provides beautiful...More

If you have a car, this series of parkways is a wonderful driving tour of the neighbourhoods, parks and lakes in Minneapolis. We recommend stopping for lunch or a drink on the lakeshore at Harriet Lake.

We did a big loop around Minneapolis. We started at the Sculpture garden. We took the trail into downtown and visited a brewery. Next we biked along the river down to Minnehaha falls and a bite to eat. We biked along the lakes and back...More
